If dude knows kids would impact his “career ambitions” he should have long gotten the snip.

If she decides to still go ahead and have this child...just sign your rights away as the father and go about your business since you don't want to be dealing with it. You can't force her to do something she doesn't want to do just like she can't force you to be involved with this if you don't want to.Just sign away your rights when the baby is born.
I don't think it is easy to sign away rights unless the mother and the court agree.

Maybe convince her to put the baby up for adoption?

Most likely.

But it will make sure that he doesn't have any involvement in the child's life, which will be best for everyone. And he's been sure to note that he can afford child support. For him, that's just the cost of "doing business."

I didn't suggest it because of his anger but because of his apparent immaturity and self-centeredness.

According to most state laws, yes that's true. Signing away parental rights doesn't mean the guy gets out of having to pay child support. But if that's his intention, then he'd better get together with a lawyer to discuss it so he can know what is the law where he lives.
